The Challenge: DAY 22 – Guard the Gates! #2

Guarding the EYE Gate

Welcome to DAY 22 of the 40-Day Mission-Minded FAMILY CHALLENGE!

Today’s focus is GUARDING the EYE GATE of your home, especially regarding media and movies. Godly integrity and personal moral character is necessary at all times, even during “off” times of relaxation. A mission-minded family surrenders everything to the Lord, and lives for His glory.

C’mon . . . Take the Challenge!

  1. Oddly this challenge was harder for me. I don’t think we are asleep at “eye guard duty” but I was just re-evaluating some of the kids’ dvds and recognizing the sarcasm and crude humor some of the more recent movies have in them. For some reason I feel a catch in my response to just get rid of them. I’m giving myself a little more time to evaluate this part and examine what my convictions are. One funny story… After the kids had watched 101 Dalmations, my 4 year old was heard several times saying, “You midian!” in an angry tone. I couldn’t figure out what she was trying to say until I realized she was mimicking Cruella’s “You idiot!” phrase. Then I realized what I had allowed in the gates, and what I now had to battle.
    The TV part seems much more natural to cut out though. I do find differences between what my husband watches, what I watch and what we let the kids watch. I’m wondering if it is important that we all be on the same page or if we guard to sensitivity levels? I love the time that is freed up when I’m not watching TV.
